Imaging Suite Named After Longtime Professor of Radiology

August 1, 2021

A generous gift of $3 million from Marvin Goldberg, MD, will create a state-of-the-art imaging suite at MIDB enabling researchers to explore connections in the brain and advance neurodevelopmental research for the benefit of children and young adults. Dr. Goldberg was an alum of the University's Medical School and a faculty member in the Department of Radiology for nearly 30 years; he passed away in 2019. The Marvin E. Goldberg, MD, Imaging Suite will include a 3T magnet which will be managed as part of the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, collaboration space for MIDB researchers, an MRI simulator that will be used to help children get familiar with how it feels to be in the real scanner and to practice holding as still as possible, and comfortable space for families involved in clinical research studies to advance discoveries and lead to better patient outcomes. The goal of the space is to make the scanning environment as child-friendly as possible with the use of artwork and storytelling to make the experience feel like an adventure. Watch the video of the recent installation of the 3T magnet into the new MIDB facility.
